"You must go away, my boy," kindly said old Somers, "you need a long rest." "Yes, yes," mournfully replied Clayton, thinking of the five days of agony before Jack Witherspoon would arrive to run the gauntlet of the treacherous Ferris. "I must go away go away and, have a long, long rest!" The old accountant watched his listless steps as he departed. "Head or heart which?" he murmured.
